SHOWS HOW GERMS, TOXINS & PLANT GROWTH REGULATORS ARE USED IN BIOLOGICAL WARFARE, HOW ATTACKS MAY OCCUR, & WHAT INDIVIDUAL SHOULD DO IF EPIDEMIC RESULTS.
Ken Smith sez: This civil defense film is chock full of extraordinarily bad advice, and portrays the aftermath of a full-scale "BW" attack as nothing worse than a flu epidemic. "Probably some of the people in your neighborhood would become sick," the narrator concedes, but "modern drugs" would quickly solve the problem. "Authorities will tell you what to do," he informs us. "Be careful what you eat and drink." A pretty dull film, but watch for the scene where the fifth columnist assaults a reservoir and the city's water supply with germ-filled spray cans.

And while it's foolish to believe everything the government tells you, it's equally foolish to believe the ranting blogger or reporter. As the film said, "Above all, don't listen to scare talk, rumors or myths."
Which means, turn the TV off.

Entertainment value if you like old movies ****
Value of useful info ***
We are told that modern science and doctors would save us all from B.W. (toxins, germs, and plant growth regulators).
I wonder if anyone in the Department of Homeland Defense has dusted this film off recently?

The answer: keep clean!
